*I know other artists who are popular have the same kind of thing going.
Up until the last year and a half, Fablefire had been largely absent from the derby's and hadn't had a chance to participate, so I'm kinda glad to see some of her things fogging.
And yes, I'm sure that the mailing list helps, but other artists tweet or FB share as well. Walmazan has "brand" recognition and asks for votes on his pages (which I have no problem with because it lets me know when he has a horse in the race so to speak.)
Bottomline, it doesn't bug that much when someone is brought in to vote for an artist, because I like to remain optimistic that they'll see other designs, artsy ones as well as the cute ones, and be willing to cast a vote to both.
Anywho, I like this design and hope it prints (maybe on a onesie woot? c'mon, one more time?)
